Race for treasurer, clerk
and supervisor in Ray
by CHRIS GRAYRay Township voters will have choices on who to select for supervisor, clerk and treasurer of their community this coming Tuesday, thanks in part to two write-ins.
Observer Staff Writer
The five-member Board of Trustees has three of its positions up for grabs in the Nov. 6 election. Each position is a four-year term.
Paula Artman is running for re-election to the clerk position. Although she is alone on the ballot, Tina Moceri has filed as a write-in candidate for clerk.
Artman is a former employee of the City of Warren and Romeo Community Schools, and is a certified clerk through the State of Michigan.
"Voters may want to choose me to represent them because I bring honesty and a passion to serve this community along with many years of experience working with the public," she said.
Moceri, a retired General Motors engineering manager, said if elected she would use lean manufacturing and processing training to streamline township duties and activities.
"It is important to have the ability to work well in teams and the ability to lead others from concept to realization of any vision," she said.
Republican incumbent Treasurer Doug Stier is being challenged by Democrat Susan Brown. Stier said he is able to better serve because he is a Michigan certified professional treasurer and is also vice-president of the Macomb County Treasurer's Association.
"I take my job professionally and seriously," he said.
He said in regards to the police millage that the voice of the people should decide the issue. He also took up the position that he would not want residents to pay for water and sewer.
"If it's supported by developers then I'm okay with it," Stier said.
Brown did not submit answers to a questionnaire by Observer print deadline.
Supervisor Charlie Bohm is running unopposed on the ballot for his position. The incumbent trustees, Betty Grader and John Zoccola, are unopposed as well.
Also running for supervisor is Joe Jarcyna, who has filed as a write-in candidate as of the Oct. 26 deadline.
With the exception of Brown, the opponents to the Republican incumbents ran as Republicans in August, meaning the top vote-getters would run unopposed on the November ballot.
See candidate questionnaires for more information on candidates who submitted one.
